Hi. I'm from Russia, Saint-Petersburg. It's very beautiful city. The second name is Northern Venice.
It's a tough question cause there are so many beautiful places, each of them has its charm and something special to it. Florence for ex. is rich with monuments, museums and restaurants and even if you stay there for a longer period of time you'll still find something new to explore. On the other hand, Florence is overcrowded with turists and you have little chances to actually meet Italians.
If you want to experience something new, come to Warsaw. It' s a city in transition - you can see old, historical buildings and remnants of socialist era mixed with modern buildings. It's a unique place!
To me there are to beautiful cities that I have visited. Maybe if I go to others they will also be beautiful. But of all the cities I have visited it is Paris and Florance/ Firenze
Paris have the gardens, buildings, arts (modern and old) fashion - new modern. it is alive! It has passion
Florance just crept in my heart- it has warmth, character, history, fashion,stalls, museums. It is just enchanting. I can walk and walk without feeling lonely. Everytime you discover something new.
It is a tough question perhaps you must think on what you want to gain from the visit.
London or Paris would be my first choices. As Samuel Johnson said, "If you're tired of London, you're tired of life." Rome is another obvious choice: 2,700 years of history, first as capital of the Roman Empire, later of the Catholic church and presently of the Republic of Italy.
If I had to choose a city in China, I would choose Shanghai over Beijing. BJ has more tourist attractions, and more history, but Shanghai is the cultural and economic capital of modern China. It's far more cosmopolitan and welcoming to foreigners than the capital.
St. Petersburg IS beautiful (much nicer than grimy Moscow), but at 60 degrees north, not a place where I'd like to spend my winter months...
Hi there Breravin,
As you mentioned yourself, Prague appears to be such a place. For 2 years I have been living in the Czech Republic and get confirmed in this conviction every time I am on a weekend getaway there. However it is not Prague I would like to suggest you. My proposal is Bergen on the western cost of Norway where I used to spent some time. The city is not a huge one but the architectonic beauty and the intense air of history more than makes up for that. Besides Bergen is surrounded by some of the most spectacular landscapes - ever for Norway. So, yeah - Bergen!

Wow, this thread is incredible. I made this post over 7 years ago, and I guess I forgot to "subscribe to this thread", so, except for the first few responses, I didn't know anyone had replied (kicking myself for not putting on notifications)! I googled this name, and found there to be 8 pages!
Since the initial post I have been to
Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nagano, and Akita are next! And I've got a whole list of cities after that.
I also realize now the impossible nature of the question - all of those cities have been wonderfully beautiful in their own way. Hard to pick a favorite
